100 Years of Stainless Steel Book

17 May 2013

As part of the centenary celebrations a special edition book has been commissioned by Marketing Sheffield and produced by Sheffield Newspapers.


An extraordinary discovery by a remarkable man changed the face of the modern world. Harry Brearley grew up in a poverty stricken family yet the stainless steel he discovered has left Sheffield's fingerprint on some of the world's most iconic buildings and inventions.

The 100 years of Stainless Steel book covers the journey from Brearley's childhood to the discovery and huge impact it still has today. Through an impressive collection of photographs it tells the story from inside the steelworks, how it shaped the city and how it continues to play a major role in 2013.

The book is available at a cost of £26.50 including P&P

EU - £40.00 including P&P
